The last Saturday of October, my sister called to let me know our brother had just had a stroke. He is still with us but literally a walking time-bomb, a miracle that he's still alive. He has one aorta 100% blocked, and the other is 70% blocked, and a second stroke could happen any time. But his symptoms were so improved with the medication, they decided to send him home to recover a bit more before his consultation with a neurovascular surgeon...

A week later, I got another call from my sister... my other brother's widow had a stroke, or so they thought. Turns out, after tests and CT scan etc, it's not a stroke but a brain tumor. Lots of prayers at the temple... it's benign, and slow growing, and since her symptoms were improving, they let her go home this last Sunday. Don't know if the tumor shifted or what... prayers answered would be my guess, both cases.

After I knew my SIL had gone home, I stopped at Walmart to pick up some dinner. And got a $450 parking ticket! In all the fuss, I'd forgotten I needed to renew my handicap parking placard! Had to scramble around to get the paperwork done, before they send me a court date...

Like I said, pretty good soap opera, eh? LOL

And I THINK we've at least found a nice arrangement of "What Child is This" for the pre-Christmas program... but haven't been able to find time to practice!

Hoping all of you are doing well...
Love ya!

P.S. My X, that lives next door? One of his friends just made a deal to loan him a LEXUS to drive until he can pay for it... price will be around $7K, and the payments are whatever he can afford, whenever he's got it... I've been in that car, it is SWEET, a 2003 in perfect condition, all maintenance up to date. His friend would still be driving it, but he just paid cash for a $160K electric car, with a bonus from his new job (he's the Pres. or something of a major corporation's IT division now)... and doesn't drive the Lexus any more. Go figure! LOL Nice to have friends in good places...
I won't have to worry about changing the rear view mirror back in my van any more! LOL
